Back in December, Soilwork revealed that they were hoping to release their new album The Living Infinite at some point this year. While that may still be the plan, it’ll be released without Peter Wichers. That’s because the guitarist and notable producer has parted ways with Soilwork… again.
The band and Wichers claim that the split is due to “creative differences.” Wichers gave the following statement about his departure:
“I want to thank everyone who has supported Soilwork over the years. It has been a wild and fun ride, but it’s time for me to explore different options in my career. I will cherish all the amazing moments I have gathered from my time with Soilwork, and I would not be where I am today without the help from you Fans, my family and Soilwork.”
As many may recall, Wichers (an original member) first left Soilwork in 2005 but returned in 2008. The last album he appeared on was 2010’s The Panic Broadcast (which he also produced). It’s still unclear as to who will replace Wichers, or whether he will appear on The Living Infinite.
